Hatfield Overload Squats
Safety Squat Bar Pause Squats (2 second pauses)
Kneeling Cable Abs
28 Minutes of Stretching
Deload work for this day was a bit different. No jumps involved. Right
side neck and shoulder still feeling tight. Trying to just let it go
away on its own without using ibuprofen. It appears that over the
weekend, someone broke on of the j-hooks for the power rack. No sure how
long they will be gone as they are supposedly with maintenance but so
are the previous j-hooks. Makes me mad as I’ve put quite a bit of weight
on those without ill effects so someone must have been being a total
tool with them. Anyways, on to the actual workout. Hatfield squats left
off right where last week did. Same weight but just five singles with
shortish rest. My setup was a bit off having to adjust to holding the
rack instead of the hooks. Definitely some hesitation and getting used
to where I need to grip the rack. So slower and tougher than I would
have liked. I was worried I was going to pull the rack down but I know
that isn’t a thing as I’ve had to do heavy lifts like this before with
no issues with the rack. Then on to pause squats with the ssb. Been a
while haha. My knees and getting used to the form again was the only
issues here. I guess these are coming back into the training again haha.
Finished up with cable abs. No change to the previous workout weights.
I’m realizing more and more that these are helping with my spinal health
to decompress after the heavy loading from squats and pulls. Not the
best these have felt but got better each set. Home to stretch and eat.
Two days rest and then two days on to finish up this week.
